Children around the world are not moving enough to maintain healthy growth and development, according to a comprehensive report released today.
The report by The Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance (AHKGA) has been conducted in 49 countries across six continents to assess global trends in childhood activities in developed and developed nations due to the comparison of "Global Matrix 3.0" grades.
The report reveals that modern lifestyles – increasing screen time, increasing community urbanization and increasing automated manual work – are one of the most serious public health problem issues that must be acknowledged as a global priority.
"Overall trends, including excessive screen time, are helping with the generation of inactive children, and they will put on a dangerous path," said Professor Mark Tremblay, chairman of AHKGS, Senior Scientist CHEO Research Institute in Canada and a University Professor in Ottawa. "We have a collective responsibility to change this because children are endangered by their physical, mental, social, and cognitive health problems, which will face many challenges: climate change impacts, globalization and the effects of rapid technological change, usually becoming physically active. They have adults and endearing adults in order to survive and move forward in the changing world. "
AHKGA international comparison 517 experts participated in a report from 49 countries, categorizing 10 common indicators on children and young people's physical activity. The results report analyzes global models and emphasizes that our changing world affects how physical activity for children is. Increasing the time on the screen and increasing the confidence of the technology in order to make better use of the many physical activities. and the use of motorized freight is increasing by changing the level of physical activity.
"Those who turn their lifestyle changes require social engineering, not only engineering construction, and challenges can vary depending on the development phase of each country," said Dr Tremblay. "It will take many aspects of society to play together, changing the behavior and behavior of our children's behavior and activism, which will be a call for action aimed at societies around the world."
Learning from each other
Children and young people, most of them, are countries with most Slovenia, Zimbabwe and Japan, but those based on different approaches to kids, one of which is consistent with physical activity as a result of the general cultural norms. Being active is not the only option, but a lifestyle.
- Slovenia scored the highest grades of Physical Activity (A?), Family and Partners (B +) and Government (A), and received an average grade B.
The most outstanding feature in Slovenia is the sporting sport for 30 years, "Slovenia is an effective tool for sportsmen and women to promote national identity and achieve global identity claims."
- Zimbabwe offers average grades above the Average Physical Activity (C +) and Sedentary Behaviors (B).
Overall physical activity is mainly active in transportation, and most of Zimbabwe's children are in need of daily life.
- Japan had the best grades for Active Carriers (A?) And Physiotherapy (A), and was less than C.
Japan is very well attended "to go to school practice" since it was set up in 1953 in the implementation of the General Education Act. Public primary schools should be in more than 4 kilometers and there is no public public school. More than 6 km from the student's home.
"There is not much to learn from each other to improve grades across the world," said Professor Peter Katzmarzyk, Vice President of AHKGS, and Executive Director of Population and Public Health Sciences at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center at the Baccalaureate. "Physical inactivity is a global concern and we can not ignore it. For our children's health and future, the physical society is built on all activities and we change social norms for children."
